Great food - confused servers

Title says it all. Fortunately, we weren't in a big hurry. Some drama happening between the head heifer and the upstarts "helping" but the yumminess of the food made it all worthwhile. $$ on the pricing.

We brought a group of 20 last minute. The wait staff was wonderful and the food was very good. In addition we were there after a funeral and they were very gracious and generous to our family. For those of you who are unfamiliar take the time to sit and eat here. On behalf of our entire family thank you... More

While traveling from Phoenix to Florida we spent the night in El Paso. We left El Paso heading to San Antonio. We, unfortunately, became very hungry and Van Horn was the only town within many miles, so we decided to bite the bullet and stop for lunch...that was our first mistake. This town looks like a third world country. Our... More

Don't waste your time! Just stop at a gas station or drive on past. The short blond haired waitress looked like she just had a smoke and hadn't put on a clean smock in a month. Just terrible service.

This place was a waste of our time and money. The waitress (thin lady with short blonde hair) was very rude from the get go. She approached us and said- drinks? No "Hello, how are you doing. What can I start you off with?" After we received our drinks she didn't come back and we went to the front to... More

We had breakfast here and ordered Huevos Rancheros. They were excellent. The service was also very good. A lot of people rolled in after we arrived. Bathroom adequate but needed towels. We passed the restaurant first because it looked sort of okay on the outside. Not much open for breakfast in town.

Had dinner here on 10 March. Very old and worn place. Parking lot full of pot holes that filled with rain water. Service was adequate. A bit slow, but O.K. Food was spicy. Has a burrito and wish I did not order it. Came with a Red sauce that was very hot. Looked like a thin ketchup sauce. The chips... More

The service is very long with local people being served before yourself even if they arrive after you. What we ordered and what we got was not the same and then to add 17% gratuity is a joke. The meat Is over cooked and has no taste. Conclusion expensive for the service and quality of food.
